Is a tamed yeti as good as a regular one? let's find out. Pours dark matter black, like the blackness of being in outer space; with one inch of the darkest colored head I've ever seen. Quite spooky actually.

The nose has an "ooo" like quality. Big and boozey. Fresh vanilla and bourbon. Ripe dark fruits lay underneath the dominant scents as well.

Wow. A totally different monster. All the beautiful yeti like qualities are there but without the in your face tongue slapping destruction (which I do love, but this is nice too) . Sweet chocolate covered vanilla beans in a thick and creamy body. The flavors are so incredibly blended and well strung together. All the elegance of yeti without it's harsh nature. Sweetness balanced by a bitter black chocolate and slightly oaky finish. The perfect amount of oak too, just a touch.

There's no comparing the two beers. They are totally different monsters, but damn are they both delicious.

Got this beauty today from a good friend. Turns out to be a vintage Oct 07 2010 bottle.

Chilled to cellar temp

A- poured beautiful black with a dark tan head

S- amazing. Deep roasted chocolate malt, alcohol, charred oak. It's hard to say in words.

T- Roasted caramel, burnt sugar, vanilla, bitter hops but finishes smooth with alcohol and charred oak.

M- Great body, almost chewy. Good carbonation.

O- One of the best oak aged stouts that I have ever tried

Turns out the place my friend got this has several more. I'm going to purchase the rest tomorrow.
